Does your Design House have a Firm Foundation?

Lansing and Detroit fashion incubator participants have heard me extol the values of forming a business entity. However the topic often comes up in a manner that doesn’t accommodate a detailed discussion of selecting the right business entity. If you have yet to choose the entity that will provide the correct foundation for your fledgling business, or you formed an entity but question your choice, I am pleased to share with you a series of five articles regarding entity selection written by my partner, Joel Farrar. Joel specializes in entity selection, entity formation and taxation. Please take a look at Joel’s first article, Protect Yourself From the Risk of a Sole Proprietorship, and keep an eye on Fosterfashion for the next four articles, which will be published over the course of the next four months.
